After receiving her BFA from Sam Houston State University, Howard lived and taught art at an overseas school in Tokyo in the 1970s. During this time, Howard was introduced to a private collection of 18th- and 19th-century Ukiyo-e woodcuts and embarked on an apprenticeship with master print maker Hodaka Yoshida. By the time she left Japan, Howard had become proficient in the medium and was well on her way to perfecting the painstaking demands of carving and printing. Immediately returning to graduate school in 1976 at the University of Texas at Austin, she began her experience with a second medium, mixed media collage.
